save your 3500, earn some interested on it, keep throwing a bit more money in the account, until you have enough to a trip to Turbo Tom. Tom does take reliability of the engine and the turbo kit itself into account when he designs his kits, and he knows more about tuning the focus than just about anyone out there. it'll be worth the wait, and nothing sucks more than buying what's cheap and then realizing you should have done it right the first time.

ya dint really needa start a new thread. yu coulda stayed in the other one where yu were wondering about turbos and gas milage. Thats where me and others stated that GUDE =

anyways, to finish off this thread, everyone will tell you to get a turbo from Tom, cuz hes the man when it comes to turbos. And for those who stay away from Tom, the new Roush kit is nice.

Just search: 'turbo' and you will realize there is no reason to continue this thread... no offence!

Roush kit. Provided your goals are reasonably moderate, and you have a stock motor, the Roush kit will be all that you need to have ALOT of fun for the price you're looking at.
